Here are some of the features of our theme:

Home Page Settings

Besides the default header image, Impact supports 2 additional header types on the homepage.  A custom header image and a slideshow that displays the featured image of recent posts.  To change the settings, open up the Customizer (Appearance/Customize from the Admin menu), Choose Home Page Options and then General Settings Options.



To include an image in the slideshow, Set a featured image and click on “Include in Slideshow” in the Impact Custom Settings area while editing a post.




Custom Post & Page Settings

This option is available for all post types.  Clicking on “Display featured Image” on post types and pages will display the featured image under the header image (if there is one) and to the right of the sidebar (if the sidebar is displayed).


To have this featured image display as the header of images on posts and pages, open up the Customizer. Select Post  & Page Options and then Post Options or Page Options. Select “Display the featured Image as the header on Posts”. Remember, you must click on “Display featured Image” in the editor for each post in order for this to work.
